In a rare and special video featuring artworks and archival photography, Jane Livingston, co-editor of Richard Diebenkorn: The Catalogue Raisonné (Yale University Press, 2016), joined by Andrea Liguori, Managing Director of the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation, and Gretchen Diebenkorn Grant and Richard Grant, Executive Director of the foundation, together speak about the four-volume reference of more than 5,000 works illustrated in stunning new color photography and exhaustive documentation. Livingston, who organized the highly acclaimed retrospective The Art of Richard Diebenkorn (1997) at the Whitney Museum of American Art, provides an overview of the volumes, enthusing that over half of the works produced by the artist in his lifetime never left his possession, and many of these drawings and paintings on paper had never before been reproduced and are “brand new to the world.” The video was produced at SFMOMA inside the museum’s 2017 presentation of Matisse/Diebenkorn and in Berkeley, CA.
